Current Employee - Technology Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at ISE full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I have been working at ISE for 13 years starting in Operations and eventually moving my way up to Infrastructure Management. Days and weeks pass quickly at ISE as I am constantly learning from both my team and senior management. I keep in touch with many of the individuals that have left ISE and many often comment that the ISE culture is unmatched and truly understand the proverb “the grass is always greener.” Culture is great, Senior management is transparent and honestly, upward mobility is proven and seen throughout the company and overall compensation is generous. Many grass roots Technology initiatives such as Devops, SDN and automation have originated from technical staff and adopted by management.

Cons

Although I am fair I do expect a lot from my team. I often challenge them with deliverables that may be a stretch. However, as detailed above, the rewards are there in terms of compensation, upward mobility and exposure. I find that I never really have to “push” people as the culture creates a momentum of its own and deliverables are rarely missed. Every individual at ISE knows that they are part of a team and that visibility is awarded to those that deserve it. Another Con is meeting management. There are too many meetings and often they are not well organized with clear agendas, objectives and deliverables.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would recommend this company to others. Few people are passionate about their job and what they do. I can truly say that I enjoy what I do and work for a team of outstanding individuals.

    I worked at ISE full-time

    Pros

    Approach is to share the good times (and the bad times) as far as pay and bonuses go. There is a real effort to offset busy periods of work with some fun.

    Cons

    Career and professional development opportunities are extremely limited. There is too much jostling for position and not enough focus on working together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is too top heavy and too heavily invested in loyalty and alliances rather than competence and capability.
